I didn't find such a thread. Under Banter Inter, I mean our sweet period between 2011/12 season till 2016/17 season including. The only rule is that the player listed represents his quality and form during that period, not overall. For example, Maicon will be that 30 years old declining player, not the world-class full back from before. Here is mine:

Handanovic
Dambrosio - Miranda - Frogy - Nagatomo
Cambiasso - Kondogbia - Brozovic
Palacio - Icardi - Perisic
The midfield was a real pain in the ass. I was in doubt of Hernanes or JM, but I think my choice is a bit more balanced. I didn't put Guarin, because he offered nothing in defense or pressing. Milito and Zanetti were at the end of their careers, and they had some serious injuries that time, so this is the reason to not include them. Same goes for Samuel. I put Ranocchia instead, despite his unique ability to make one major mistake per game at least.

Every formation is accepeted, as long Nagatomo is there. You can say he could play with heart, he could be a good guy, he can also score some goals. But he was anyway a defensive disaster. Maybe i use to hate him because he was way too long here compared to Perreira or for example Dalbert. No one wanted this guy + he was good for marketing because of he's japanese fans, thats probably why he stayed (way too) long.

About the other players i agree, but yeah nagatomo need to be in there.

The best performers were
Handanović
D'ambrosio - Miranda - ROLANDO (Honorary MVP) - Nagatomo
Guarin - Kovačić - Brozović
Palacio - Icardi - Perišić

A shoutout to Samuel, Zanetti and Cambiasso, but they were brought before the banter era, so I didn't include them. On the bench are also Osvaldo, Jovetić and Joao Cancelo. In the midfield.... I don't know, Hernanes?

I can't stress enough how not getting Rolando for 5mil was a horrible idea.

I don't think Cancelo qualifies, I'd say first Spalletti season shouldn't fall into banter era.

Handanovic

D'ambrosio- Rolando - Miranda - Nagatomo

Kovacic - Brozovic

Palacio Jovetic Perisic

Icardi

First guy off the bench: Ljajic


I didn't include anyone who played in a better era, even if Zanetti and Cambiasso could have been included.

I'm not so sure on Brozovic only, might put Guarin ahead of him. Brozovic played more advanced role back then and I wouldn't put him ahead of a healthy Jovetic, unicorn.

i did only now understand that it's "best" and not worse formation :lol: so people here really think that nagatomo was better then telles? insane.

edit - for me:

Handa
Cancelo- Miranda - Rolando - Telles
Brozo- Cambiasso
Shaqiri Rafinha Perisic
Palacio

It's hard to include Shaqiri but he had a lot of qualities before coming here.

Probably my fault. I couldn't resist going full banter :lol:




Only thing i remember from Shaqiri is a match at Bergamo. Apart from that he was pretty shit. Banega was actually decent. He was sold because he was easy plusvalenza.

I'm going to modify the definition of Banter era a little and use players from 2012-2018, but who weren't part of the Scudetto winning squad.

Carrizo; Ansaldi, Miranda, Murillo,  Alex Telles; Taider, Kondogbia; Shaqiri, Banega, Keita Balde; Osvaldo
Osvaldo... man the guy had wagons of talent. One of the few players I wish could have played more. In hindsight, I wish the board had sided with him rather than Icardi

I gotta say, Ricky Álvarez was a personal favorite of mine during that banter era
I think in 2012-2014 era he was actually quite good. Or decent.

Handa
Cancelo- Miranda - Rolando - Telles
Shaqiri - Medel- Guarin -Perisic
Icardi-Jovetic

I mean Medel was a good destroyer, even you can't expect anything attack from him.

I always like Jovetic & Cassano, even Cassano is crazy- this is a hard one for me.

I was actually struggling to put Rafinha or Shaqiri, cause if we solely rate their performance with us it would be Rafinha.

Also there are periods Kdog and Gags played well, which might sub out Medel for me.

I choose 4-4-2 cause the low quality, so they can def like a compact box and less complicated for execution, like Newcastle does it these days.

fuck i forgot about Cassano. He was always one of the best and gave always some creativity to the game.
